Jennifer Moody


2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
cup (1stick) butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp. baking powder
tsp. salt
1 tsp.. vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
cup chopped walnuts
cup unsweetened flaked coconut (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 13x9-inch baking pan; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the brown sugar and flour. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Remove 1 cup of the mixture and set aside. To mixture in a large bowl, add baking powder and salt. Using a fork, lightly beat in vanilla, milk and egg. Continue beating until a smooth batter forms. Pour batter into prepared baking pan. In a small bowl, combine the chocolate chips and walnuts. Fold in the coconut, if using. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over the top of the batter in the pan. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips and walnuts. Using a long flat spatula, spread the topping evenly over the top of the batter in the pan. Bake bars for 35 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Transfer pan to a wire rack. Cool bars in pan completely before slicing. Using a serrated knife, cut into 24 bars. Store in airtight container for up to 5 days.
